Gucci SS 2016

Appliqued and embroidered butterflies and other insects, as well as florals in shapes harking back to the 70s, were key for both womens and menswear in Gucci's SS 2016 collection.

Andrew Gn SS 2016

We 've just finished hosting London Fashion Week, showcasing fashion designers looks for this Autumn and Winter. The next few posts will be about designer's looks for the forthcoming Spring -Summer season, and how they have again incorporated the ever popular butterfly imagery into their ranges. I am really liking the very punchy colours, strong shapes and Chinoiserie-inspired butterflies of this collection by Andrew Gn.

Gesture III & IV

Two further pieces from my Gestures series (link here), hot from the studio and delivered to Cambridge Contemporary Art. I believe one of the pair is already reserved for a customer, so phone/email for the other, or alternatively contact myself or the gallery to get the next two from the series, or commission a Gesture of your own. More to come very soon!
